Cooler Master MM710 Honeycomb Gaming Mouse Revealed!

Cooler Master just unveiled the MM710 lightweight gaming mouse that features a unique honeycomb shell design!

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about the new Cooler Master MM710 gaming mouse!

 

The Cooler Master MM710 Gaming Mouse

Thanks to its honeycomb shell, the MM710 is Cooler Master’s lightest mouse – weighing just 53 grams! It is further paired with an ultra-light braided cable.

The light weight of the Cooler Master MM710 allows for quicker movements, and less fatigue and wrist pain during long gaming sessions.

Lightweight Honeycomb Design + Ultraweave Cable

The Cooler Master MM710 features a new, perforated honeycomb shell that reduces its weight to less than 53 grams. This also necessitates a redesign of its internal components, to increase durability and reduce flex on the mouse sides.

It is paired with a durable and light Ultraweave cable to reduce cable pull while swiping. They both allow for faster movements while reducing fatigue during long gaming sessions.

PixArt PMW3389 Optical Sensor + Omron Switches

The Cooler Master MM710 features the PixArt PMW3389 optical sensor, which supports up to 16,000 DPI.

Paired with a 32-bit ARM processor, the mouse is fully customisable via software – sensor sensitivity, button response time, surface tuning, lift-off distance, polling rate and more!

For greater durability, its left and right buttons use Omron switches that are rated for 20 million presses.

Superior PTFE Mouse Feet + Ambidextrous Design

The Cooler Master MM710 features an ambidextrous design, with a slight hump to provide extra palm support for gamers who prefer the claw grip.

It is also small enough to fingertip for most hand sizes, while allowing smaller hands to use the palm grip.

For a low-friction, consistent glide, its feet use 95% pure PTFE that is significantly better than the standard mouse feet.

The Cooler Master MM710 is available with immediate effect, at these recommended retail prices :

2018 Dell State Of Gaming Report

An extensive survey of 5,763 video game players in 11 countries, commissioned by Dell, revealed that today’s gamers are quite diverse; from a coworker with two kids, to the woman next to you at the gym, or, most commonly, a spouse, sibling or friend.

Through online platforms and social media, and fueled by the popularity of esports, the gaming community is ever-expanding while also growing in diversity and inclusiveness.

Gone are the days that being called a “gamer” is derogatory. According to those surveyed, fewer than one in 10 feel either “judged,” “childish” or “embarrassed” being called a “gamer” (8-9% each).

[adrotate group=”2″]

Instead,they consider “gamer” a positive label and feel “fun” (35%), “cool” (29%), or “excited” (26%) as a result.While some gamers are willing to self-sacrifice to continue gaming, the majority are well-rounded with interests in music, sports, traveling and socialising.

The gaming community has also become less of a “boy’s club,” with only 14% of gamers globally concerned about the gender of their rivals.

In general, gamers are welcoming to whomever is behind the computer. When it comes to being matched with rival gamers, culture/ethnicity (8%), political views (7%), and sexual orientation (6%) are for the most part inconsequential to a player. What matters most is the other gamer’s skill level (40%).

Designed for eSports athletes, this new gaming mouse features Logitech’s most accurate optical gaming sensor, a metal spring button tensioning system, onboard memory for driver-free operation on tournament systems, and a comfortable, durable yet lightweight design.

The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse (Amazon | Lazada) builds on the heritage and global popularity of the Logitech G100s shape with top competitive eSports professionals, and combines it with the incredible speed, accuracy and responsiveness of the G303.

Advanced Optical Gaming Sensor

Consistent, pixel-precise accuracy makes a critical difference in high-stakes competitive gameplay.

[adrotate banner=”4″]

The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse (Amazon | Lazada) is the culmination of more than 30 years of engineering and manufacturing experience. The mouse is optimized to reduce weight to improve comfort, stability and responsiveness. Every aspect of the engineering has been rigorously tested to make sure it can stand up to even the most intense gaming.

The top surface of the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse (Amazon | Lazada) is treated with a special coating to improve durability and grip, and the left and right buttons are tested to exceed 20 million clicks – the equivalent of a pro gamer training 10 hours every day for two years.

Onboard Memory for Driver-free Operation on Tournament Systems

Because you can’t always guarantee the tournament machine will have your configuration software available, or even that it’s allowed to be installed, the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse (Amazon | Lazada) lets you save your exact DPI settings, button assignments, and lighting configuration to the onboard memory in the mouse, all using the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS), so you’ll never have to worry about whether your setup is right.

 

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse (Amazon | Lazada) is expected to be available in Malaysia by mid-April 2017 for a suggested retail price of RM329 (inclusive of GST) / ~US$74.

Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse Review

Logitech is a Swiss company with a long history of producing some of the best accessories for the PC. They started with the computer mouse, and naturally diversified into keyboards, webcams and speakers. Today, we will take a look at the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum gaming mouse.

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum replaces the Logitech G502 Proteus Core, its predecessor. It is an evolutionary upgrade of the Proteus Core mouse with customisable RGB illumination. Let’s check it out!

Originally posted @ 2016-03-03

Updated @ 2017-01-15 : Corrected references to 6 weights. There are only 5 weights. Updated other aspects of the review.

 

Unboxing The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum comes in a very nice cardboard box with full colour printing. You will find its key performance characteristics listed on the right side of the box, and its contents and requirements on the left side. The back of the box has a nice top view of the G502 Proteus Spectrum together with its key features.

Join us as we unbox the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum in this video. Please ignore the typo about six metal weights. There are only five weights.

Once you unpack everything, you will find the following items :

  • One Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum gaming mouse
  • One Logitech G502 tuning weight case with 5 weights (3.6 g each) inside (please ignore the typo in the video above)
  • One Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum manual
  • One Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Safety Compliance and Warranty leaflet
[adrotate banner=”5″]

 

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum is a rather large mouse, designed for right-handed users with large hands. It feels comfortable even in my smaller hand. However, one of the side buttons was out of reach. More on this later.

It has a nice curved thumb rest which doubles as a latch for the weight-tuning system (we have special section on this later in the review), and a full body for proper palm support. This may not matter though if you prefer the finger grip style of holding the mouse.

In case you are wondering, it is only available in one colour – black. The top surfaces are all matte-finished to prevent unsightly fingerprint smears. It also has textured rubber strips on both sides for better grip.

PMW3366 IR Sensor

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum mouse uses an IR sensor, instead of a laser sensor. This may seem like a downgrade but professional gamers will tell you – IR sensors actually deliver better precision and sensitivity than laser sensors, especially on textured surfaces.

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum uses the much-vaunted PMW3366 IR sensor, which supports resolutions from 200 DPI all the way to 12,000 DPI. But ignore that upper number – no one will actually use that. What’s really important about this sensor is its precision and sensitivity.

In those aspects, the PMW3366 optical sensor really rocks – it was both sensitive and precise. Sensitivity is critical in gaming because you want your every move to register, even the slightest move. Precision is also important because you want your move to be precisely tracked so that it registers exactly in the game, or application you are using.

That said, please note that the PMW3366 sensor will not work with glass or highly glossy surfaces, unlike the Logitech MX Anywhere 2‘s Darkfield laser sensor. This isn’t really a problem because you can easily “fix” it with a proper mouse pad, or even a piece of paper.

 

Scroll Wheel & Buttons

Although Logitech claims that the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum has 11 programmable buttons, there are really just 9 programmable buttons. To make it a little more confusing, there are actually 10 buttons on this mouse, but one isn’t programmable while the scroll wheel can be programmed for 3 functions. That’s how you get 11 programmable “buttons” – 8 physical buttons that are programmable + 1 scroll wheel that can be programmed for 3 different functions.

 

Button Default Setting Button Default Setting
1 Left Click 6 Back
2 DPI Up 7 Right Click
3 DPI Down 8 Left Scroll, Middle Click, Right Scroll
4 DPI Shift 9 Scroll Mode Switch
5 Forward 10 Profile Switch

Pressing on the Scroll Mode Switch (Button #8) switches the scroll wheel between these two modes :

  • a “hyperfast scrolling mode” – smooth and quiet scrolling but lacks tactile feedback, and
  • a “click-to-click scrolling mode” – the typical ratcheted mode which precise but “noisy”.

We found the scroll wheel to be too loose in the hyperfast scrolling mode. A flick will send the screen scrolling far beyond what we would expect. The ratcheted mode is far better. The only downside – it is quite noisy if you scroll rapidly.

Note that smaller hands may find it hard to reach the DPI Shift button (#4).

[adrotate banner=”5″]

 

Glide Performance & Stability

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum is supported by four asymmetric pads of what appears to be UHMWPE (Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene), also known as UPE.

The traditional PTFE (commonly known by its trade name of Teflon) is slicker and gives a smoother glide, but is also more expensive and less durable. It is also hard to differentiate the gliding performance of UPE against PTFE. So we are not surprised to see UPE being used in the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum.

What’s more important to us is the stability of the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum. We are glad to report that it was very stable. Nothing irritates us more than a mouse that “rocks”. It’s pointless for a mouse to use PTFE feet for a smoother glide if it’s so unstable that it rocks as you move it.

Weight Tuning System

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum has an all-plastic chassis and weighs just 121 grams / 4.3 ounces (without the cable). That might be too light for some gamers, so Logitech included a weight tuning system. This comprises of a plastic case with 5 metal weights and a weight tuning chamber hidden inside the G502 Proteus Spectrum.

Watch this video to see how the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum‘s weight tuning system works. Please ignore the typo about 6 weights. There are only 5 weights.

Each metal weight weighs 3.6 grams (0.13 ounces), so you can adjust the weight of the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum by up to 18 grams / 0.65 ounces (15%). The hexagonal design of the weight tuning system is quite clever, allowing Logitech to arrange them around the sensor, in a simple chamber covered by a single magnetically-locked cover.

 

USB Cable

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum uses a USB cable, instead of a wireless connection. The USB cable is 183 cm (6 feet) long, which is fantastic for desktops but a handful for laptops. The USB cable is braided for strength and durability. The cable joint is also protected by a hard plastic sleeve and the two main mouse buttons.

The USB cable allows the G502 Proteus Spectrum to achieve a higher polling rate of 1,000 Hz. Wireless mice, on other hand, maxes out at 500 Hz. That is a difference of response time of 1 ms vs. 2 ms. Of course, whether you can really tell the difference in real world usage is another matter.

What will really matter a lot is the fact that a USB connection will never suffer from interference, which can happen to wireless mice, due to nearby USB drives or other wireless devices.

[adrotate banner=”5″]

 

Logitech Gaming Software

The Logitech Gaming Software is not necessary to use the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum. However, it is highly recommended because it allows you to make full use of the G502 Proteus Spectrum‘s built-in features.

In the Home section, you get to switch between using the 3 profiles stored in the mouse’s onboard memory, or the profiles Logitech created for different games. Enabling Automatic Game Detection will allow you to scan for games in your computer, and assign preset profiles to use with the G502 Proteus Spectrum.

The profiles offer a variety of customisation options. You can change the functions of the 8 programmable buttons, adjust the DPI sensitivity levels, polling rate and even the colour of the RGB lights using up to 3 profiles.

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum comes with two presets which fine-tunes it for the Logitech G440 hard gaming mouse pad, and the Logitech G240 soft gaming mouse pad. However, you can fine-tune the G502 Proteus Spectrum for any surface by adding a new surface and clicking on the Tune option. Very nifty!

Finally, the Logitech Gaming Software comes with a “recording feature” which they call Input Analysis. Basically, it allows you to log your key presses so you can find out which keys / buttons you pressed the most or longest during a gaming session.

Our Verdict

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum was designed with one goal in mind – desktop gaming. It is a full-sized mouse that offers a lot of palm support, and comes a nice braided USB cable that is 6 feet long. The PMW3366 IR sensor it uses cannot handle glass or glossy surfaces, but on regular desktop surfaces, it is precise and sensitive.

It also offers a ton of customisation features. You can customise the 9 programmable buttons for 11 functions, or the built-in LED lighting that supports up to 16.8 million colours. And like many gaming mice, you can change its sensitivity and polling speeds.

The Logitech Gaming Software it comes with is essential to accessing all those customisation features. It also allows you to fine-tune the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum for different table or mouse pad surfaces. Everything you need to adjust the mouse to your exacting needs.

Some may gripe about its plastic build but it doesn’t rattle or creak. In fact, it feels really solid and more importantly – stable. Gamers who find the G502 Proteus Spectrum a little on the light side can use its weight tuning system to beef it up a bit.

[adrotate banner=”4″]

We are not sure how popular RGB LED illumination is to you, but those who enjoy showing off their gaming PCs will love the fact that it allows them to choose from up to 16.8 million colours. Even better, they can sync the light and colour patterns with other Logitech G devices.

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum also comes with a scroll wheel that not only supports vertical and horizontal scrolling, but can also switch between ratcheted and smooth scrolling modes. Just press the small button next to the scroll wheel to switch modes – it can’t be any faster or simpler than that! Unfortunately, the scroll wheel had too much inertia in its smooth scrolling mode, and was quite noisy in its ratcheted mode.

Other than the fact that smaller hands may find it hard to reach the DPI Shift button, we really enjoyed gaming with the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum. It is therefore our pleasure to award it with our Reviewer’s Choice Award. Congratulations, Logitech!

Razer Turret Keyboard Mouse Combo Launched

IRVINE, Calif.Razer today announced the much-anticipated release of the Razer Turret, a mouse and integrated keyboard and mouse surface that together deliver the power of desktop-grade gaming peripherals into the laps of gamers. The combo was originally unveiled as a prototype in early 2015.

Designed with a focus on enabling a PC gaming experience from the couch, the Razer Turret consists of a gaming grade chiclet keyboard with full anti-ghosting and a highly precise gaming mouse with a 3500 DPI sensor. The integrated magnetic mouse mat ensures the mouse will not slip even during intense gaming sessions.

“The Razer Turret brings the immense world of PC gaming to a previously impossible frontier—the living room—where only consoles have traditionally roamed until now,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “Finally, we have a perfect solution for gamers to enjoy the unrivaled precision of a mouse and keyboard combination from the comfort of the couch with the durability and reliability that PC gamers demand.”

The Razer Turret comes with dual wireless connectivity, enabling users to play lag-free when connected to a console via Bluetooth LE or to a PC via the bundled wireless 2.4 GHz adaptor. The performance of the Razer Turret rivals desktop-grade gaming hardware, providing a tactical weapon that can be unleashed on opponents from a casual environment.

The Razer Turret’s ergonomic and ultra-slim form factor is made specifically to fit on a user’s lap. A foldable hinge ensures that the lapboard is unobtrusive and dock-able, leaving it a normal part of the living room environment when not in use.

Made to withstand even the most action-packed gaming marathons, the Razer Turret has built-in high-capacity lithium polymer batteries, so a player’s kill streaks will not be interrupted by untimely battery warnings. By supporting up to four months of usage on the keyboard (an estimated 40 hours of nonstop play on the mouse), Razer Turret owners won’t have to charge their gaming weapons after every use.

Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mouse Review

Logitech is a Swiss company with a long history of producing some of the best accessories for the PC. They started with the computer mouse, and naturally diversified into keyboards, webcams and speakers. Today, we will take a look at the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 wireless mouse, which was specially developed for mobile users.

Don’t mistaken the term “developed for mobile users” to mean a teeny-weeny or flattened mouse with wireless capabilities. The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is designed to address the critical needs of the mobile user, namely the ability to track on any surface, dual connectivity via Bluetooth and wireless receiver, and the ability to switch between 3 different devices. Let’s take a look!

 

Unboxing The Logitech MX Anywhere 2

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 comes in a very nice cardboard retail box, with its key features listed on the box in four languages. The system requirements (Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.8 or better for WiFi and Windows 8 or Mac OS X 10.10 or better for Bluetooth) are listed on the right side. On the left is a list of the box’s contents.

The box actually flips open in the front to reveal the MX Anywhere 2 mouse and its Pico Unifying receiver behind a clear plastic window. This allows you to gauge how well the mouse will fit your hand before purchasing it. The inner side of the cover shows you the five simple steps to get the MX Anywhere 2 mouse to work with your devices in pictorial form.

Once you open up the box, you will find the following items :

Now, let’s take a closer look at the MX Anywhere 2 mouse…

Page 2 : Size & Grip, Darkfield Laser Sensor, Dual Connectivity, Battery & Charging

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is a compact mouse designed for mobile use, so don’t expect much palm support. It is best used with a pincer grip, even with smaller Asian hands. With a typical resolution of 1,000 dpi, you don’t need much wrist action to go a long way.

In case you are wondering, the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 only comes in one colour scheme – a mix of black and army green, with chrome accents on the scroll wheel. Let’s take a look at its specifications.

 

Darkfield Laser Sensor

As a mouse designed to be used on-the-go, it is important that it can work with any kind of surface. However, the traditional laser sensor has trouble tracking on clear glass or very glossy surfaces. This led Logitech to develop a dual-laser system they dub as the “Darkfield laser tracking technology“.

Basically, it uses two laser diodes to better pick up the minute surface irregularities on highly glossy surfaces. This allows the MX Anywhere 2 to track on all types of glassy surfaces as long as the glass surface is at least 4 mm thick.

 

Dual Connectivity

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 has another unique feature – dual connectivity. It supports Bluetooth 4.0 (also known as Bluetooth Low Energy or Bluetooth Smart), allowing you to pair it with virtually any laptop and smart device in the market without the use of any receiver. However, your PC will need to run on at least Microsoft Windows 8 or Mac OS X 10.10.

If you are using an older computer that does not support Bluetooth 4.0, or runs on Windows 7 or an older version of Mac OS X, the MX Anywhere 2 comes with a Pico Unifying receiver. This miniature USB receiver with a range of 10 meters (32 feet) allows you to pair any computer with the MX Anywhere 2 using a direct 2.4 GHz radio connection.

As this is a Unifying receiver, you can pair any compatible Logitech keyboard to the same receiver. This allows you to save one USB port by using the same receiver for both keyboard and mouse. You will need to install and use the Logitech Unifying software to pair and unpair compatible Logitech devices to the Pico Unifying receiver.

 

Battery & Charging

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 comes with a small 500 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery. Logitech claims a maximum battery life of 40 days, based on 6 hours of daily use. This is probably based on the Bluetooth 4.0 connection. Using the Pico Unifying receiver, we got about 3 weeks of use before requiring a recharge.

The MX Anywhere 2 recharges its battery via a micro USB port in the front. They intentionally placed the port there so that you can continue using the mouse while it’s charging. Once attached, the USB cable temporarily turns this wireless mouse into a “wired” mouse.

You will be glad to know that since the MX Anywhere 2 uses so little power, a single minute of charging time will give you up to 2 hours of use.

Page 3 : The Scroll Wheel & Buttons, Gliding & Stability Performance

The Scroll Wheel & Buttons

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 comes with a scroll wheel that supports both vertical and horizontal scrolling. Pressing on the scroll wheel switches between two modes :

  • a “hyperfast scrolling mode” – smooth and quiet scrolling but lacks tactile feedback, and
  • a “click-to-click scrolling mode” – the typical ratcheted mode which precise but “noisy”.

There is a small middle button behind the scroll wheel that enables the Gestures feature, but only if the Logitech Options utility is installed. Right behind it is a small LED light that gives you an indication of its battery life. If the green light turns red, it means the MX Anywhere 2‘s battery is down to less than 20% of its capacity – an indication you should recharge the mouse.

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 looks symmetrical but it’s not an ambidextrous mouse. It was definitely designed for the right-handed user, with the two side buttons on the left side and none on the right side. However, the two side buttons aren’t really all that useful – being used as Forward and Back buttons.

If you don’t mind living without the side buttons, the MX Anywhere 2 is symmetrical enough to use with your left hand. You just need to install the Logitech Options software to switch the left and right main buttons.

The base of the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 conceals its On/Off switch and a Connect button. There is also an Easy-Switch button with 3 small LED lights. The Connect button allows you to put the MX Anywhere 2 in pairing mode, while the Easy-Switch button allows you to pair up to 3 different devices with the MX Anywhere 2.

 

Gliding & Stability Performance

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is supported on its base by four average pads of what appears to be UHMWPE (Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene), also known as UPE.

The traditional PTFE (commonly known by its trade name of Teflon) is slicker and gives a smoother glide, but is also more expensive and less durable. It is also hard to differentiate the gliding performance of UPE against PTFE. So we are not surprised to see UPE being used in the MX Anywhere 2.

More importantly, the base of the MX Anywhere 2 was very stable. Nothing irritates me more than a mouse that “rocks”. It’s pointless for a mouse to use PTFE feet for a smoother glide if it’s so unstable that it rocks as you move it.

Page 4 : Logitech Options, Our Verdict

Logitech Options

The Logitech Options software is not necessarily to use the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse with your Windows or Mac PC. However, it gives you the ability to customise the mouse buttons, scrolling speed and gesture options.

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 has a default sensitivity of 1,000 dpi. This is lower than what you would expect from a gaming mouse, because this is a mouse designed for mobile users who would have less screen area to work with. However, you can use Logitech Options to change the MX Anywhere 2‘s sensitivity from as low as 400 dpi all the way to 1,600 dpi, in steps of 200 dpi.

 

Our Verdict

For a relatively small mouse, the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 packs a ton of smart features. It supports both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, which includes the ability to pair with up to 3 different computers or devices.

Road warriors who have to put up with all sorts of different table surfaces at cafés and airports will love its Darkfield laser sensor. This dual-laser sensor technology allows the MX Anywhere 2 to work on virtually any surface, including glass and highly glossy surfaces.

[adrotate banner=”4″]The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 also comes with a scroll wheel that not only supports vertical and horizontal scrolling, but also the option to switch between ratcheted and smooth scrolling modes. Just press the scroll wheel to switch modes – it can’t be any faster or simpler than that!

We also like the fact that Logitech was smart enough to recharge the MX Anywhere 2 via a micro-USB port in the front. This allows the mouse to be used while it’s charging, essentially converting it into a wired mouse while it’s charging up.

We thoroughly enjoyed our limited time with the Logitech MX Anywhere 2. It worked very well with both our Mac and Windows computers, switching between Bluetooth and its WiFi-based Unifying receiver effortlessly. It is therefore our pleasure to award it with our Reviewer’s Choice Award. Congratulations, Logitech!

Logitech “Be Free” & “Save The Couch Potato” Campaigns

The ‘Be Free’ and ‘Save the Couch Potato’ campaigns were created to provide solutions and meet the evolving demand of the consumer. The products featured in the ‘Be Free’ campaigns, the Logitech K480, Logitech K380 and Logitech M337, were designed specifically to address the needs of the consumers who use multiple devices with different operating systems. Additionally, the Logitech K400 Plus, was created to ‘Save the Couch Potato’ and designed for those who want to work, create and relax from the comfort of their couches.

The Logitech K480 was designed from the need to be able to connect to multiple devices with different operating seamlessly. With its Bluetooth connectivity and Easy-Switch function, consumers can ‘Be Free’ and work with up to three devices simultaneously.
